Quotes from Lawrence Tierney's Characters

    1. Mr. Brown: Let me tell you what "Like a Virgin" is about. It's all about a girl who digs a guy with a big dick. The entire song. It's a metaphor for big dicks.
    2. Mr. Blonde/Vic Vega: No, no. It's about a girl who is very vulnerable. She's been fucked over a few times. Then she meets some guy who's really sensitive...
    3. Mr. Brown: Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa... Time out Greenbay. Tell that fucking bullshit to the tourists.
    4. Joe Cabot: Toby... Who the fuck is Toby? Toby...
    5. Mr. Brown: "Like a Virgin" is not about this sensitive girl who meets a nice fella. That's what "True Blue" is about, now, granted, no argument about that.
    6. Mr. Orange/Freddy: Which one is "True Blue"?
    7. Nice Guy Eddie: "True Blue" was a big ass hit for Madonna. I don't even follow this Tops In Pops shit, and I've at least heard of "True Blue".
    8. Mr. Orange/Freddy: Look, asshole, I didn't say I ain't heard of it. All I asked was how does it go? Excuse me for not being the world's biggest Madonna fan.
    9. Mr. Blonde/Vic Vega: Personally, I can do without her.
    10. Mr. Blue: I like her early stuff. You know, "Lucky Star", "Borderline" - but once she got into her "Papa Don't Preach" phase, I don't know, I tuned out.
    11. Mr. Brown: Hey, you guys are making me lose my... train of thought here. I was saying something, what was it?
    12. Joe Cabot: Oh, Toby was this Chinese girl, what was her last name?
    13. Mr. White/Larry: What's that?
    14. Joe Cabot: I found this old address book in a jacket I ain't worn in a coon's age. What was that name?
    15. Mr. Brown: What the fuck was I talking about?
    16. Mr. Pink: You said "True Blue" was about a nice girl, a sensitive girl who meets a nice guy, and that "Like a Virgin" was a metaphor for big dicks.
    17. Mr. Brown: Lemme tell you what 'Like a Virgin' is about. It's all about this cooze who's a regular fuck machine, I'm talking morning, day, night, afternoon, dick, dick, dick, dick, dick, dick, dick, dick, dick.
    18. Mr. Blue: How many dicks is that?
    19. Mr. White/Larry: A lot.
    20. Mr. Brown: Then one day she meets this John Holmes motherfucker and it's like, whoa baby, I mean this cat is like Charles Bronson in "The Great Escape", he's digging tunnels. Now, she's gettin' the serious dick action and she's feeling something she ain't felt since forever. Pain. Pain.
    21. Joe Cabot: Chew? Toby Chew?
    22. Mr. Blonde/Vic Vega: It hurts her. It shouldn't hurt her, you know, her pussy should be Bubble Yum by now, but when this cat fucks her it hurts. It hurts just like it did the first time. You see the pain is reminding a fuck machine what it once was like to be a virgin. Hence - "Like a Virgin".
    23. Joe Cabot: Wong?

    1. Joe Cabot: Wait a minute, who didn't throw in?
    2. Mr. Orange/Freddy: Mr. Pink.
    3. Joe Cabot: Mr. Pink? Why didn't you throw in?
    4. Mr. Orange/Freddy: He don't tip.
    5. Joe Cabot: He don't tip? What do you mean you don't tip?
    6. Mr. Orange/Freddy: He don't believe in it.
    7. Joe Cabot: Shut up.
